1. What is something not too many people know about you?
A lot of people think my actual name is “Timmah” lol, or that my username is just some cool sounding name i made up. Timothy (Tim) Mah is my actual proper full name just to set the record straight lol. I’ll even get some people thinking that I’m one of the girls in the portraits I take. So also just making that clear; I’m a boy. hahaha.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
Clearly one of them is photography or I wouldn’t spend so much of my time on Instagram haha. Shooting and editing take up a majority of my day when I’m not at my day job, so it’s kind of taken over any other casual hobby that I had from beforehand, like playing video games or binging on TV shows. However, I’m really big on street fashion and sneakers, so you’ll occasionally see me posting all of the shoes that I unnecessarily purchase on my IG story haha.
3. What are your goals for the future?
In the short term I’m definitely working on expanding my portfolio and career as a photographer, as well as collaborating with more creatives! Past that I’m just as lost as any other person in their early 20’s lol I’m still trying to figure everything out with my life too.
4. What is your definition of success?
Personally, I think of success as being financially sound while being able to work with your passions. That’d be the most ideal. I also think it’s important that we leave a lasting impression on our community. Not to sound preachy lol, but using your success to enrich the lives of others as well is a form of success.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're currently working on.
I’m the admin for the Urban Outfitters Hawaii IG account (@uohawaii) so I always have my hands busy with shooting weekly fashion content for the feed. For my own personal feed I’m definitely working on creating more conceptual shoots, pieces that really make you feel some type of way if you know what i mean lol. Stay tuned to @timmah for the latest updates! Haha
